Agency, E. P. (n.d.). The Stressor Identification Process. Retrieved from

Excerpt: To restore and maintain the chemical, physical, and biological integrity of the Nation’s waters, numerous States and Tribes are using biological assessments and biocriteria to identify water bodies that are biologically impaired. The Stressor Identification Guidance Document has been created to assist water quality experts in identifying unknown causes (stressors) of biological impairment through the use of a logical, scientific process by which they can evaluate available information. The document includes two case studies that have been developed to illustrate the principles and processes of the document. These case studies should enable States and Tribes to more easily perform a causal analysis themselves. Once the causes of the biological impairments are identified, water resource managers will be better able to locate the sources of the stressor, or stressors, and take management actions aimed at improving the biological condition of water bodies in which the fish, invertebrate, algae or plant communities, and other aquatic life have been detrimentally impacted.
